POP MUSIC: Pentatonix, Zayn, Nicki Minaj And More Make This Week An Excellent Week for Music

Published

on

Mercury’s Retrograde will still have our technology on the fritz and our communication failing for two more days, but the rest of the planets must be making up for Mercury’s annoying self because we have been blessed with some amazing, new music this week! You won’t win this time Mercury! As you prepare your weekend plans, be it a stroll through the park, a turn up at the club, or a vomit outside of your favorite bottomless brunch spot, you are going to want at least one of these songs to be the coordinating soundtrack.

Pentatonix- Perfect

The quintet is nails it again with this Ed Sheerhan cover. The simplicity of the song only magnifies the groups unbelievable vocal abilities. It’s also fun to see Kevin showing off yet another ability as he makes us swoon with that cello.

Florence and The Machine – Sky Full Of Song

It has been 3 years since the indie rock band has released an album, and it seems like they are eager to dive back in with this one. The smooth sound of Florence Welch’s voice echoes through this song reminding us of what we have been missing. The group’s artistry is only magnified by the black and white music video. There are rumors of a 4th studio album entitled As High As Hope being released as soon as June 2018.

 

Zayn – Let Me

Did you just hear the squeal of a teenage girl? Ok that wasn’t a teenage girl, it was me. Never the less, former One Direction bandmate released his latest single earlier this week and it has immediately blazed up the charts. The video is raising eyebrows as the singer’s love interest looks a lot like Gigi Hadid….the same Gigi Hadid that Malik was in a relationship with for years. Oh, and there’s an intense fight scene in the video which only turns the puddle of drool into a full blown river…

The Weeknd – Call Out My Name

This is the one to put you in the feels…to avoid a drunken sob-fest, do not mix this song with those brunch cocktails. The lyrics of this song have many fans thinking this song was written about the relationship The Weeknd had with Selena Gomez. “I said I didn’t feel nothing baby, but I lied/I almost cut a piece of myself for your life/Guess I was just another pit stop/’Til you made up your mind/You just wasted my time” may allude to the singer’s willingness to give Gomez a kidney when her illness required her to have a transplant. Either way, this smooth jam is definitely good for some easy listening this weekend.

Nicki Minaj – Barbie Tingz Chun Li

The KWEEN is back! Nicki Minaj has been relatively quiet since her 2014 album Pinkprint, and fans have been itching for some new stuff. Well she has not disappointed with the release of TWO singles this week. The songs give fans exactly what they want from Minaj, which are killer lyrics jam packed with personality. It’ll be fun to see what the rap queen brings us next!

 

 

With the air finally feeling like spring, it will be great to pep up that step with some jams in the headphones.

AWWW: A Rescue Team Of 9 Was Needed To Rescue 1 Adorably Chubby Rat

Published

on

Over in Bensheim, Germany a rotund rodent got herself into a jam when she tried to squeeze through a hole of a manhole cover only to get stuck…and honestly, I can relate. When I was 8 years old I tried to squeeze my thunder-thighs-in-training into a children’s swing and it took my dad and three other grown men to get me out. I am the German fat-rat!

Volunteer firefighters were called when a young girl noticed the fat rat was stuck and no time was wasted to help the poor critter. Eight firefighters and at least one animal rescuer appeared on the scene to safely extract the chubby critter. Animal rescuer Michael Sehr told BBC “She had a lot of winter flab and was stuck fast at her hip. There was no going forward or back.” When asked why anyone would even want to save something so many are repulsed by Sehr said “Even animals that are hated by many deserve respect.”

Alls well that ends well! Hopefully no authorites will be needed to help me shimmy out of these skinny jeans I thought looked cute this morning…in the meantime, check out the entire rescue below!

Elton John And Taron Egerton Performed A Fantastic Duet Of ‘Tiny Dancer’

Published

on

The dancer may be tiny but the talent on stage was massive! Taron Egerton and Elton John gave a fantastic performance of “Tiny Dancer” last night at the 27th Annual Elton John AIDS Foundation Academy Awards Viewing Party.

If you’ve been looking for a reason to toss on your bedazzled cape and brightly colored sunglasses then boy do I have good news for you. An “epic musical fantasy” about Elton John’s life, entitled Rocketman, is expected to hit theaters in May 2019. Taron Egerton, from Robin Hood fame, plays the musical legend and judging by his performance last night, we are all in for a treat. The audience of the charity event felt like a candle in the wind when Taron suggested an off-the-cuff performance of “Tiny Dancer.” There isn’t even a pun creative enough to embody what the audience must have felt when Elton John himself volunteered to accompany Taron on the piano!

In addition to a truly moving performance, the 27th Annual Elton John AIDS Foundation Academy Awards Viewing Party raised more than $6.3 million for an effort to end AIDS.

VIRAL: There Is No Room For Love When This Dog Protects His Barney

Published

on

I think this dog missed the whole “I love you, you love me” message Barney was trying to teach all those years ago…

In this viral video posted to Twitter, an adorable pup channels his inner Cujo anytime his owner gets close to the Barney the Dinosaur stuffed animal. While the frenzied attacks are comical in themselves, this video should definitely be played with the sound up. While we never see more than the dog owner’s hand, we hear his high pitched screams of terror every time the dog take a lunge.
